Touchy subject to say the least,,,..When i first started i was all in,,spent tons of money on all the stuff..later on i discovered i had great tap water(TDS about 30)and started an algae scrubber a few years ago(google those too)....I don't have a reef,mainly because of the fish i want to keep,but, I've been using tap for a couple years and never looked back...I would test your tap first and go from there...I'm not saying to do one VS. the other ,,but i don't think its 100% necessary(there, i said it! )to have an RO/DI unit IF you have good tap,,few do,,but good tap is out there,,and i use it...
